We took this photo of our Dachshund weathervane on a regular customer’s garage today, looking great against the light blue autumn sky. It’s probably the most popular of our range of Dog weathervanes, and would make an amazing gift for any Dachshund owner. I’ve gilded the letter bars in 23.5 carat gold leaf which is a really special touch; when the sunlight hits it directly it glistens beautifully.
For more information and to purchase this weathervane, check out the Dachshund Weathervane Page. We are more than happy to make alterations to the design, for example we’d love to add a wire haired Dachshund weathervane, sign and set of hooks to our range!
Initially we drew the Dachshund with his ear down, but a customer asked if we could make it look like it is blowing in the wind, and we’re really happy with the result as it’s very appropriate for a weathervane. The ear is still down in our house name or number sign design though.
Here’s a small selection of our favourite dog weathervanes! We’re going to be selling some weathervanes and a few other metalcraft products through a dog gifts website in the very near future, you can see what else they sell on the link below:
I found these while searching through the computer for suitable images for the new website, so thought I’d get a few on the blog today. The Dachshund weathervane is one of our best sellers, and rightly so; I love how his ear is blowing in the wind! They are an increasingly popular breed these days, and this weathervane makes a great gift for any owner. The Border Collie weathervane is probably my personal favourite, as we have a nearly year old Collie so we may be a little biased. I love this design as it’s so easy to personalise – customers can email us a photo of their dog, and we can alter the weathervane to match the white markings on their collie, to be either cut out or painted.
I enjoyed designing the Labrador and Jack Russell weathervane as it was actually quite a challenge getting the stance of both dogs right while keeping the shape distinctive of breed characteristics. It’s a really fun one as it shows off the personality of both breeds, especially the determination of the little Terrier! The Flat Coated Retriever weathervane has made this list as they are such lovely friendly dogs, and I think this design shows off their happy personality and love of life. I think it’s fantastic that we have produced a range of dog weathervane designs that are not just flat side profiles, but action shots that show a moment in the dogs life, reflecting each individual personality and what they love to do. In this way we can create a bespoke, personalised weathervane based on any breed, or breeds, of dog to suit an individual customer’s idea. An amazing personalised gift for a dog lover!
